Life is ever changing. Who can tell what may come next?
Today it is fair–the next day there may be the thundering storm. Today I may need nothing–tomorrow I may be like Jacob, with nothing but a stone for my pillow and the heavens for my curtains.
But what a happy thought it is: though we do not know where the road winds–we know where it ends!
We may have to go through trial and affliction; the pilgrimage may be a tiresome one–but it is safe. We cannot trace the river upon which we are sailing–but we know it ends in floods of bliss! We cannot track the roads–but we know that they all meet in the great metropolis of Heaven! God help us to pursue the true pilgrimage of a pious life!
“He led them forth by the right way–that they might go to a city of habitation!” Psalm 107:7
